Not my best week

Tomorrow morning I will wake-up, pack my bags, go to work and then head to the airport.
I get to go home!
I have never had a week where I missed my husband more, or just wanted to get a hug from him. Tornadic storms went over my neighborhood where 2 tornadoes dropped down. No damage was reported from what I hear, but I was thousands of miles away when it happened. I hated not being there to give my husband a kiss, and my dogs a snuggle. I am bored this week. It's been raining and freezing cold all week long, and I have had no desire to go out in it to explore the city. I spend my nights watching the news reports and all they talk about is the Joplin tornado, the Oklahoma tornado and the bad weather the country is experiencing.
I told my sister I hated that I was so far from home with everything going on, and she told me she was glad I was so far away from it all..... but, it's driving me absolutely crazy to not be home! To be isolated in an area that thinks tornadoes happen all of the time, and don't understand how rare all of this is. I just want to go home and get a hug. I've been taking naps in the afternoon because I can't sleep at night, which makes it harder to sleep at night, and worse to wake up in the morning. I have only been here since Tuesday, and I feel i've been here for 2 weeks non-stop. It's unrelenting, slow and never-ending. 

On the bright side, I had some good chinese food...
and I finally ordered a necklace that i've had bookmarked since last year...
 I have wanted it since I began my job so that I could wear it with pride on all of my travels, but now it will always be a reminder to embrace everyday, and tell my family I love them. Thank god it's friday, and I can leave this week behind me. AND I get to be home all week long in KC! A whole week with my hubby and my puppies! I simply can not wait!!!!!!!!!!
I hope everyone is doing well.

I'm sorry you're having a bad week, that would be really hard to be away from home during all the rough weather. I hope you have a good weekend with your hubby!
